Power Devolution aspired by Tamil People will not be granted to them. Hence get ready for compromises and conciliation, said, the Chairman of the Constitution council and a senior Attorney at Law, Jayampathy Wickramaratne.
The 40th Annual commemoration of Thanthai Selva was held in Thanthai Selva Square located near Jaffna Public Library where he delivered the Memorial address and said as above during the course of his address.
Tamils were not the first to ask for Federal System. In a multi- racial country all would call for equal rights. It is justifiable. But the Sinhalese people were never prepared to grant equal rights let alone federal system.
A great opportunity has come now. The present Government has the power to institute changes in the Constitution. All possibilities are there that a solution with the approval of the Tamil faction. We expect the southern people to support the new constitution in the Referendum.
As a leftist I wish to state here that the Power Devolution is not going to be at a level expected by the Tamil People, he said.
